The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Labour Party (LP) has stated that the party was not in alliance with the National Intervention Movement (NIM) also known as the third force.
LP also dismissed media reports linking the LP with coalition of 15 governors, 80 senators and 15 political parties to form a mega party ahead of the elections.
National Chairman of the party, Alhaji Abdulkadir Abdulsalam, on Tuesday in Abuja, explained that the party’s has resolved go into the 2019 general election alone.
Abdulsalam said at no time did the party contemplate or engage in any discussion with political parties or associations to form a party ahead of the elections.
He said: “We are surprised and embarrassed to read in the media that Labour Party was among political parties that want to form the NIM.
“We are never part of it. Nobody discussed it with us, we did not attend any meeting or sent any representative to any meeting where it was discussed and we did not attend any of the briefings.
“We unequivocally disassociate ourselves from the publications as we are not part of NIM and we cannot be part of NIM.
“We hereby call on the leadership of NIM to henceforth cease from the practice of including Labour party’s name illegally in their publications or else we will be forced to seek legal redress against further occurrence.”
